Thank you for your reply.
Have you had tetanus vaccination series and hepatitis B vaccination in the past?
Basically if it penetrated the skin, then tetanus booster dose may be required. If you have had a primary tetanus series (completing the childhood primary vaccine series with tetanus toxoid, a booster dose during adolescence, and at 10-year intervals thereafter during adulthood), you would need a booster dose at present since you last had one 12 years ago. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Also please ask your doctor and Occupational Health Department to inform you the results of the investigation.
